Taurus 26° “Not what you get, what you give.”

The Span of Enjoyment – The 2nd Hemisphere of Taurus

Phase 56

Earth Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-spiritual-experimental.

Taurus 26° A Spaniard serenading his senorita

This is a symbol of man’s unlimited capacity for self-establishment and for finding everything he desires immediately at hand, as here given emphasis on the ideal side. Reality is seen as the product of every least element the individual contributes to its overall effectiveness, rather than as the end result of whatever he may discover and pre-empt for himself privately. A poetry of living and a music of desire become the final touchstones for a true self-fulfillment.

The keyword is CONSTANCY.

When positive, the degree is the continual reassurance by which the will of man coaxes the depths of his soul into his experience, and when negative, futile attempts to control life by emptying blandishment.

Give a Little – Roger Hodgson 

Some give more.
Some give less.
Some give in.
Some give way.
Some give a damn.
Some don’t give a damn.
Some give too much.
Some give too little.
Some give up.
Some just keep giving….

And those are the ones whose well never runs dry. 

I think they are the ones that are not worried about what they get back…

How many times have these words been uttered! “After all I’ve done for you!!!!” These are the “expectors”! But what if that’s not how happiness really works. What if their sights are set too low! What if what we really desire lies beyond our 3D reality expectations. Consider the following advice on “If and Should”:

“An act of love has no expectation of return. Expectation is a limitation of imagination. Our imaginations are limited by expectation of outcome. To go beyond our expectations frees our imagination. It’s where we may come to know the truth of things by allowing them to be exactly whatever they are. Conditions. How do we remove them to experience unconditional love, you ask? Remove ‘if’ and ‘should’. An act of love has no expectation of return.” Brett Poe 6.14.21

Taurus 25° “Breaking down the barriers.”

Parrish Womble Park playground

The Span of Enjoyment – The 2nd Hemisphere of Taurus

Phase 55

Earth Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-social-inspired.

Taurus 25° A large well-kept public park

This is a symbol of the everyday integrity of society at large, and of the community divisions of labor through which each person gains the resources for well-being and self-enjoyment which obviously he could never create for himself through his own isolated efforts. There is here an emphasis on the common experience of mankind as the setting for an individual’s worth and achievement in their more characteristic lineaments, and for his consequent self-discovery and self-realization.

The keyword is RECREATION.

When positive, the degree is a high devotion to the practical welfare of all people collectively, and when negative, a complete surrender of personality to mass judgments and transient superficialities.

Welcome all who enter here!

What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong 

What does your well-kept public park look like? Is it already complete or is it one that you are still manifesting out there? Do you get your ideas and cues from what you see out there or from you envision in here? It doesn’t matter, but “well-kept” is key to this symbol’s fulfillment!

Color your world with love.

Of note is the interesting fact that on the original card which Dr. Jones wrote this Sabian symbol, the word “dignity” was written in parenthetically. I wonder why. What do you think? Does dignity play a large role in your well-kept public part.

Taurus 24° “Third-eye sight shows I through eye.”

9299121d4a923faf67a7a65811213fd1

The Span of Enjoyment – The 2nd Hemisphere of Taurus

Phase 54

Earth Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-social-responsible.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Taurus 24° A mounted Indian with scalp locks

This is a symbol of pride in personal prowess, and it suggests an exceptional capacity for gaining and administering authority among men. There is here an appreciation of the potentials in nature herself, and of the senses as they can be brought to the full service of an individual’s aspiration and ambition. The conquest of an enemy becomes not so much a momentary supremacy over him as an acquisition and subsequent use of his particular genius.

The keyword is COMMAND.

When positive, the degree is an unimpeachable control over life through a discipline of the self and its powers, and when negative, a ruthlessness or complete inhumanity in dealing with others.

Guerrilla Warfare – The Patriot

Take a controlled and measured approach in all matters of consequence. Please, no momentary lapse of reason and surrender not unto frustration or temptation for these may come come upon one subtlety and without warning. Once aware, bind your slaying cord carefully and with full awareness of that which you are about to take command of and about to rule over. Just remember that when you pick up one end of a stick, you are picking up the other end, as well. There are consequences to all of our actions–every single one of them!

Looking the other way, going into denial, hiding our heads in the sand–those are actions, too.

Read carefully this warning: “Every time we witness an injustice and do not act, we train our character to be passive in its presence and thereby eventually lose all ability to defend ourselves and those we love.” Julian Assange

Michael, the Archangel, sets here the example of righteous indignation. We must likewise take aim and do what we must. We must know we are standing in the light as we take divine action.

These are the times of the warriors of light.

Blessed Michael, archangel,
defend us in the hour of conflict.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil
(may God restrain him, we humbly pray):
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God thrust Satan down to hell
and with him those other wicked spirits
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen

Taurus 23° “Love’s Law: Subject/Verb are One.”

klausen-The-Philosophers-Stone

The Span of Enjoyment – The 2nd Hemisphere of Taurus

Phase 53

Earth Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-social-receptive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Taurus 23° A jewelry shop

This is a symbol of the practical values of everyday living, and of the personal display by which man may cherish the rewards of his effort and so seek to give them an effective durability. Implicit in the symbolism is the kaleidoscopic capacity of the world at large for producing and reproducing whatever an individual may require in the way of immediate realities with which to deal. Here is the luxury which mirrors any marked achievement in character or skills.

The keyword is PRESERVATION.

When positive, the degree is a happy gift for shaping all vision to larger dimensions and directing all aspiration to more than trivial ends, and when negative, a greediness which betrays the soul with trifles.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone 

Too hot to handle? Not if it’s being put to use by the right hands! 

Refining the Philosopher’s Stone:  1) Substance, 2) Activity and 3) Form become 4) Color/Choice, 5) Cut/Chance, 6) Clarity/Change, and 7) Carat/Character.

The Alchemy of Life

Substance: “The Philosopher’s Stone was an extraordinary stone that could be used in alchemy to transform base metals (e.g., lead, copper and iron) into precious metals (e.g., silver and gold). The theoretical roots outlining the stone’s creation can be traced to Greek philosophy. According to Plato, the four elements are derived from a common source or prima materia (first matter), associated with chaos.” 

Activity: “How can we know we actually are refining a philosopher’s stone in our own personal lives? By our increasing distinterest in things that are of no value, and our continuing eagerness to center the self within itself as a laya center for the invisible fellowship.” The Sabian Manual 

Form: 6 of Diamonds ~ Wonder ~ A large diamond with the power of a lodestone. She stared at the ring. It was very old, but the pure white fire of the stone flashed in the light, and prism-like it sent all colors sparkling as she moved her hand. She was reminded of the alchemist speaking of the lodestone and how it could attract whatever was needed or wanted. Did she have the key to the cosmic gravitation in this beautiful gem? Here was the symbol and reminder of the power that resides within each one of us to attract what is wanted through the power of expectation. The diamond took the light and focused it to where it spread out in every color of the rainbow just as we have the power to aggregate the outer to our inner pattern.

Taurus 22° “Conquer self with inward aim.”

Our Lady of Sorrows

The Span of Enjoyment – The 2nd Hemisphere of Taurus

Phase 52

Earth Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-social-sensitive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Taurus 22° White dove over troubled waters

This is a symbol of the clear direction or absolute orientation which comes to man from birth as a consequence of his indwelling spirit or divine heritage, whether or not there is any conscious co-operation with it on his part. Here willy-nilly is freedom of understanding, and the strength which the possession of a real mission or a genuine reason for being will give to any individual. There is also a wholly practical protection, to the precise extent it is accepted.

The keyword is GUIDANCE.

When positive, the degree is a skillful reconciliation of difficulties in the light of over-all potentials, and when negative, an ineffectiveness of mind through habitual woolgathering.

Greatest Love of All ~ Whitney Houston

Mister God, This is Anna

Let’s listen in to a conversation between Anna and Fynn, shall we?

“Mister God made everything, didn’t he?”

There was no point in saying I didn’t really know. I said “Yes.”

“Even the dirt and the stars and the animals and the people and the trees and everything, and the pollywogs?” The pollywogs were those little creatures we had seen under the microscope.

I said, “Yes, he made everything.”

She nodded her agreement. “Does Mister God love us truly?”

“Sure thing,” I said. “Mister God loves everything.”

“Oh,” she said. “well then, why does he let things get hurt and dead?” Her voice sounded as if she felt she had betrayed a sacred trust, but the question had been thought and it had to be spoken.

“I don’t know,” I replied. “There’re a great many things about Mister God, we don’t know about?”

“Well then,” she continued, “if we don’t know many things about Mister God, how do we know he loves us?”

I could see this was going to be one of those times, but thank goodness she didn’t expect an answer to her question, for she hurried on: “Them pollywogs, I could love them till I bust, but they wouldn’t know, would they? I’m million times bigger than they are and Mister God is million times bigger than me, so how do I know what Mister God does?”

She was silent for a little while. Later I thought that at this moment she was taking her last look at babyhood. Then she went on.

“Fynn, Mister God doesn’t love us.” She hesitated. “He doesn’t really, you know, only people can love. I love Bossy, but Bossy don’t love me. I love the pollywogs, but they don’t love me. I love you Fynn, and you love me, don’t you?”

I tightened my arm about her.

“You love me because you are people. I love Mister God truly but he don’t love me.”
It sounded to me like a death knell. “Damn and blast,” I thought. “Why does this have to happen to people? Now she’s lost everything.” But I was wrong.

She had got both feet planted firmly on the next stepping stone.

“No,” she went on, “no, he don’t love me, not like you do, its different, its millions of times bigger.”

I must have made some movement or noise, for she levered herself upright and sat on her haunches and giggled. The she launched herself at me and undid my little pang of hurt, cut from the useless spark of jealousy with the delicate sureness of a surgeon.

“Fynn, you can love better than any people that ever was, and so can I, cant I? But Mister God is different. You see, Fynn, people can only love outside, and can only kiss outside, but Mister God can love you right inside, and Mister God can kiss you right inside, so its different. Mister God ain’t like us; we are a little bit like Mister God, but not much yet.”

It seemed to me to reduce itself to the fact that we were like God because of the similarities, but God was not like us because of our differences. Her inner fires had refined her ideas, and like some alchemist she had turned lead into gold. Gone were all the human definitions of God, like Goodness, Mercy, Love, and Justice, for these were merely props to describe the indescribable.

“You see, Fynn, Mister God is different because he can finish things and we cant. I cant finish loving you because I shall be dead millions of years before I can finish, but Mister God can finish loving you, and so its not the same kind of love, is it?”

― Fynn, Mister God, This is Anna

Taurus 21° “Here behold the path unfold.”

2017-05-11_15-13-54

The Span of Enjoyment – The 2nd Hemisphere of Taurus

Phase 51

Earth Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-social-experimental.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Taurus 21° A finger pointing in an open book

This is a symbol of the rectification of experience on the side of ends and meanings, and of the fine discrimination of which man is capable. There is here a dramatization of the racial wisdom as this becomes incarnate in conscious individuality. Purpose and interest sharpen the attention, which in turn quickens the insight and permits an outreach into events which thereupon are ordered by the self’s potentials.

The keyword is CONFIRMATION.

When positive, the degree is a sensitiveness to the enduring significance of each special complex in human affairs, and when negative, a loss of integrity through blind obedience to others and a tendency to do things by rote.

“Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken.” ― Jane Austen, Emma

Taurus 20° “Easy comes as easy goes.”

Horse Clouds

The Span of Enjoyment – The 2nd Hemisphere of Taurus

Phase 50

Earth Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-physical-inspired.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Taurus 20° Wind clouds and haste

This is a symbol of the transiency which characterizes life for the average individual, and of the instability which results from the disinclination of most people to give very much of themselves to their experience. Implicit in the negative symbolism is the divine aplomb of the ego, ever able to hold to its course through superficial excitement. There is a real spiritual lightness here as an outer mark of the soul’s fundamental freedom.

The keyword is EXALTATION.

When positive, the degree is efficiency in controlling events at any point of transition or crisis, and when negative, a diffusion of self and waste of energy in an attempt to grasp the myriad facets of the unessential.

The Battle of Wits ~ The Princess Bride

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Plato

The Dialogues of Plato universally concern themselves with the quest for Truth and the understanding of what is Good.

Plato contended that there was one universal truth which a human being needed to recognize and strive to live in accordance with.

This truth, he claimed, was embodied in the realm of Forms.

Plato’s Theory of Forms states, simply put, that there exists a higher realm of truth and that our perceived world of the senses is merely a reflection of the greater one.

When one looks at a horse, then, and values that horse as `beautiful’, one is responding to how closely that particular horse on earth corresponds to the `Form of Beauty’ in the realm of Forms.

In order to recognize the Form of Beauty one needs first be able to recognize that this perceived world is merely an illusion or a reflection, and that what one calls ‘beautiful’ on earth is not beautiful in itself but is only ‘beautiful’ in as much as it participates in the Form of Beauty…

Taurus 19° “Let me spill it out for you.”

heart-croatia

The Span of Enjoyment – The 2nd Hemisphere of Taurus

Phase 49

Earth Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-physical-responsible.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Taurus 19° A newly formed continent

This is a symbol of the raw substance of existence, and it suggests that experience may shape its own ground in full conformity with its desires. Inherent in the symbolism is an awareness of the constant reworking of all reality through the course of successive overall cycles, and it dramatizes the fact that man re-establishes himself continuously within the lineaments of each new realization of his powers and of the opportunities of his world.

The keyword is ORIGINALITY.

When positive, the degree is a revolutionary potentiality by which each individual is enabled to remodel the entire face of the universe, and when negative, a genius for futile turmoil and persistent upset.

Alfie  ~ Dionne Warwick

When is the last time you listened to this song? When is the last time you read the poem below? Let love lead the way. Treat both as if they were the first time. Let their originality speak to your soul. Something’s bubbling up from beneath the surface! Let love lead the way….

IF by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Taurus 18° “It’s right here when you’re ready.”

Rooms with a view.png

The Span of Enjoyment – The 2nd Hemisphere of Taurus

Phase 48

Earth Element – Fixed

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-physical-receptive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Taurus 18° A woman holding a bag out of a window

This is a symbol of the soul’s high ministry of service to every purpose and function of living, and of the individual’s self-fulfillment as he furthers the over-all ends of men in general. There is here an exaltation of every commonplace activity. Life comes to its ultimate fruition as a community realization, with everyone increasingly aware of his fellows and ever seeking to encourage them in their daily routine.

The keyword is FACILITATION.

When positive, the degree is high personal effectiveness in commandeering the elements of experience for any particular purpose, and when negative, dissatisfaction with things as they are and complete ineptness in handling them.

Firework ~ Katy Perry

The image I’ve chosen for this degree comes from a Book Review: “Rooms with a View: The Open Window in the 19th Century” by Sabine Rewald. She writes, “You are probably appalled by this confession, but I love that moment in the year when darkness falls and people illuminate their homes but don’t pull back the curtains, as then I can sneak a glimpse of other rooms and other lives…..”

What has your bag being held out of an open window brought into view—even, perhaps, without your realizing it?

Here might be the stream of life’s scenes floating by our view, today within our grasp, on a quantum stream of cosmic currents from our open window. We collect them and now inspect them for a deeper understanding of these messages on the wind:

The Seven Ages of Man by William Shakespeare

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.

At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms;

And then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school.

And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress’ eyebrow.

Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon’s mouth.

And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part.

The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound.

Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

This degree is a tribute to White Lotus Day, honoring both the day of passing of Helena P. Blavatsky and the birthday of the Theosophical Society. Her instructions–her last will–was that on this day of commemoration, food was to be given to the fishermen of Adyar and to share her work.

What’s in your bag? And what is its purpose? Do you have something you are offering? Or, perhaps you have put it outside of the window to capture something or some things! Is it operating as if a cornucopia in reverse? What has been gathered? What might be shared?

As I recently described a vignette from the Sabian tarot to a client, which was advising that we carefully consider when, how and where we share our gifts, he responded with something I will never forget! “There are millions of people screaming out in pain, yet only some are asking for help.” How true is that! As with Venus, the appreciator, and how things end–she will accept only that which she desires. What is wanted? What is needed? What’s in your bag?

The formula is: sustaining-ideal-efficient-generalizing-physical-sensitive.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones provides the official meaning of this Sabian symbol in his work, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology:

Taurus 17° A battle between the swords and the torches

This is a symbol of the eternal struggle between the practical necessities of transient competitions of life on the one hand and the motives and meanings which give them direction and order on the other, as here emphasized on the world stage. Man survives and gains a genuine self-fulfillment as he aligns himself with the cause of enlightenment while yet respecting the manifestations of might.

The keyword is RESOLUTION.

When positive, the degree is high organizational skill and an ability to bring the magic of understanding to any specific difficulty, and when negative, a loss of self-competence through the conflicting compulsions of necessity and desire.

New Soul ~ Yael Naim

Confucius says, Study the past if you would define the future.

Fool’s Gold and Little Brains

“Fossils found in southwest China reveals 520-million-year-old brains and some were preserved in fool’s gold. The brains belong to shrimplike creatures just a few centimeters long named Fuxianhuia protensa, which scuttled around the seafloor during the Cambrian Period. Before this time, most life on Earth was very simple; during the Cambrian, life exploded in diversity and complexity.”

So, this battle that’s raging within—these swords and torches—ask “Is your word good as gold or not worth its weight?” Speak your truth! Fight for the right with all you’re worth! All you have is time. This is your life! So, stop fooling around! Now is the time for steeled resolve!

Genesis 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Guarding the way–flaming swords! To both show the way, as well as to protect the unworthy from entering in! You can’t fight your way to the fruit of the tree of life. It’s fruits are eternal life. Should the sword secure passage, we would live forever in our sins! 

Truly our quest is ….
